    I've enquired about upgrading our CS4 site license. I don't really want to do it, but adobe are only allowing upgrades from CS3 & 4 until the end of December, so I'm wary about us losing out on a big discount if we need to upgrade in future.

    Did you buy the maintenance to go with your site license? We didn't, so will have to pay full price again.

    :O I didn't think that mattered. I thought if you bought that it meant that you got free upgrades for the life of your license but when that expired, you'd have to renew to continue or be stuck on the last version you had.

    I just read that Adobe have dropped support for CS5. You now have to pay for an upgrade to CS6 for fixes:

    Adobe only support the current and previous versions of Photoshop, so I am assuming they are classing Photoshop v12.1 (included with CS 5.5) as an entirely separate version despite being almost identical to Photoshop v12.0.4 (in CS 5.0)?

    In May 2011, Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 (CS5.5) was released, with new versions of some of the applications. Its version of Photoshop, 12.1, is identical to the concurrently released update for Photoshop CS5, version 12.0.4, except for support for the new subscription pricing that was introduced with CS5.5.

    Adobe will be at EDIT (the conf) to talk about CS6 if you want to find out more and see a demo.
